|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
Traveling, outdoor activities (boating, swimming, sports, summer festivals), food, family gatherings, music.
Nick was raised Lutheran and Joanne was raised Catholic. We were married in and have been raising our daughter in the Catholic church. We plan to do the same for future children. Our 4 year old attends the local catholic school.
|Our Musical Interest|
Music is one of our top interests. While we enjoy all types of music, our favorite is country music. We enjoy going to concerts and finding local live bands to sit and listen to.
|About Our Home|
We live in a 3 bedroom, 2 story home that is about 3 years old. We designed our home with a lot of personal touches and spent many hours helping to build it. It is very open, welcoming and kid friendly. We have multiple play areas in our home including room in our basement for our children to ride a bike or scooter during the winter months. For the warmer times of year, we have a large backyard with a playset and swings.
|Our Dughter, Reese|
Reese is learning to ice skate on the pond across the street from our house. In the warmer months, we spend a lot of time in the back yard on the playset or in the garden. Reese's favorite thing is eating freshly picked cherry tomatoes! Last summer, she even planted and took care of her own bean plant. She is so caring and thoughtful. She is very eager to have a sister or brother to play with!
|We live in the state of...|
Wisconsin. Home of the Badgers, beautiful seasonal changes, and friendly, welcoming neighborhoods!
The homes in our neighborhood are mostly 10 years old or less. We live within walking distance of a nice park with plenty of playground equipment, soccer fields, volleyball and basketball courts, baseball diamond, and a park shelter for gatherings. There are lots of activities happening at the park spring thru fall. Directly across the street from our home is a pond where we go ice skating in the winter. Our neighborhood is full of families with children of all ages. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. We have at least one block party get together each summer.
We live less than one mile from a gym that has indoor and outdoor pools and a waterpark which we frequent in the summer.
